[Newegg]Phenom II X6/880G/4GB/1.5TB SuperCombo $395.00

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
the Phenom II X6/880G/4GB/1.5TB SuperCombo for $395 with free shipping. Includes:


•AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz, 4GB 1600 RAM, 1.5TB HDD

•MSI mATX MB, DVD+/-RW, case w/ 500W PSU, SATA cable

source here.

Is it good price?Worth or not?

Well... it really depends on what you want. Honestly? DIY Combo deals aren't usually worth it. The ram and CPU are solid components. That's about all I would take personally.

But again, what do you want it for? What is your budget? I wouldn't care for that mobo as it is an older chipset, and a m-ATX form factor at that. Again, if you are looking to build a HTPC maybe not so terrible, but why would you want a hex-core CPU if that were the case?

IMO no. Hell no. Seagate has one the worst (if not the worst) HDD reliabilty ratings among HDD manufacturers. I don't care for that Rosewill case. As for the PSU, I do know Rosewill makes a good quality PSU. That one isn't it if I read the model correctly.

So yeah, better off buying what components you choose based off your individual needs rather than that cluster of mismatched hodge-podge.

Let's end this quickly.

Phenom II x6 - $150 after promo
Foxconn A88GMV - $50 + $5 shipping (WARNING: it is recommended that you add VRM cooling before overclocking with this processor)
Kingston HyperX Blu 2x2GB DDR3-1600 - $36 shipped
Coolermaster Elite + 460W PSU - $50 + $10 shipping
Seagate 1.5TB HDD + Samsung DVD drive - $78 both shipped
$364 + shipping

I also recommend swapping some of these parts for either:
Samsung F3 1TB + DVD drive - $70 shipped (fast 7200RPM drive is better than 5900RPM for OS) [Superbiiz]
ASUS M5A97 - AM3+ compatible and with good overclocking features for $90 shipped [Superbiiz] (note: no integrated graphics)
Price then varies between $356 + shipping and $404 + shipping.

Because pairing a Phenom II x6 1055T with a low end MSI motherboard is a really bad idea.
Oh yeah, Supercombos in general are really bad and easily matchable with individual parts choices.

Yeah I always go out of my way to nuke supercombos like I did just now
(Users who buy parts at terrible value lose in the end. You could be building 4 PCs including 1 high end quad core for $300-400 like I did or you could be stuck with one low end PC that doesn't do what you want to to do).

^This, LMAO @ the individual prices being cheaper than the combo price

DIY combos on newegg are so bad. Most of the time the components aren't even compatible with each other. I've seen one combo where the mobo and the cpu was the wrong socket. The people that put these combos together don't test for compatibility and seems to just throw random stuff they have overstocked at their warehouse into a combo.
